Nice, bready, balanced, lightly toasted and quaffable. Aroma was of lightly soured nectarines or peaches and lightly toasted bread crust. Really handsome hazy medium orange/tan. Flavor was just sweet enough to please and just raw enough with the grains to make you want to quench your thirst again, really balanced but all characteristics were understated. Almost belgian ale like in the carbonation with small bubbles melding with substantial body Nice beer that had a background vegetal twinge but nowhere like the Smuttynose version. Thanks Troegs. 2010 12 oz. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2010
A-pours a dark yellow blended with notes of orange, quite hazy with a thinner creamy off white head.
S-has a lot of typically wheat beer aromas, light notes of toasted grain, hints of breadiness, flavors of yeast and lemon, a fair bit of spicy phenol and notes of corriander, quite grassy in the finish.
T-the taste is similar to the nose, quite grainy with a hint of toasted breadiness, the phenols are either faint or not oven there, spicy and yeasty with a faint bit of lemon. Corriander spice, pepper, and grassy finish.
M-light body, nice syrupy feel to it, great carbonation to balance it out with a crisp finish.
D-this is ok, its not good but its not bad. more like a spicy hefeweizen as the malt flavors seem to be more subdued. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Pours a hazy deep orange/copper with a large foamy/bubbly off white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of sweet fruity malts, nuts, caramel, toffee and floral notes. Flavor of bready/pretzel like malt, nuts, some fruit character, moderate hop bitterness, caramel and light toffee notes. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2010
12 oz bottle from Capones. Pours a hazed orange copper with a frothy lively off white head good retention and nice lace- very intense lively carbonation- seems very high for a bock. Aroma has a slight lemony sulfur kick from the yeast/fermentation, doughy yeast, bready, med burnt toast, big biscuity malts and light sweet munich hints with some light phenolic grassy notes- smells mostly fresh though, then a slight sweet fruity maltiness as it warms- floral hops open up a bit as it warms as well which is nice. Flavor is big intense sweet carapils, biscuit malts, vienna toastiness, cookie dough, burnt pilsner malts, caramelized sticky decocted malts- a bit of leathery yeasty doughiness that detracts slightly with light phenolic character that hurts it slightly, as does the high carbonation- almost can feel and taste the CO2 burn on the palate and nose, malts with co2 almost give it a soapy taste upfront that fades a bit, very sweet malts upfront as well that kind of fade off with the co2 and finishes ok- moderately dry, but then a slight almost solvent in the middle of the tongue as the beer goes down. Worst part is the high carbonation, but still needs refinement elsewhere. Refermenation in the bottle got a little out of hand I think- there is a nice yeast sediment on the bottom which is nice though. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark apricot color with a huge orange-white head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was sweet, tangy and sugary with notes of pear and yeastiness. The flavor was sweet, tangy and sugary with notes of yeast and pear. The middle was dryish with faint floral hops and a hint of ripe fruits. The finish was long with notes of tangy malts and sugar. The body was thick, full and chewy. Well done.

Good summer beer even though I know maibocks were meant for spring. Lovely fruity character with some carbonation and a hoppy citrus bite in the finish. Orange colored and not as full textured as other maibocks but refreshing nonetheless. A bit unbalanced between initial sip of fruit and after flavors but tasty overall. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2010
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of sweet malt, bread, honey, and grains. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Very good lacing. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malt, grains, bread, honey, cereal, dough, light hops, slight spice, and a hint of graham cracker. Medium to full body. Lightly tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, bread, malt, honey, cereal, grains, dough, bread finish is dry. 7%ABV is completely hidden throughout. jredmond (8283) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Bottle purchased at Capone’s bottle shop. Split with Pat and Tony. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is biscuity, bready and wheaty. Mouthfeel is smooth with slight carbonation. Notes of spice, bread, malt. TonyDiUlio (664) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Had with James and Pat. Pour is a hazy deep orange. Nice white head. Some lacing. Aroma is malty with an undertone that smelled like Bisquick. Flavor is a little harsh. Some bitterness hits the tongue while the flavor moves to the back of the tongue with some bready flavor. So-So tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 16, 2010
A damn fine beer, I would drink it until my liver gave way. Nothing offensive at all, just beer bliss. Would get again fo sho. Im not familiar with the style, but very tasty.
